[mythtv] Aspect Question (svn -- probably a RTFM)

So, looks like I'm just out of luck, unless I want to write something myself.
I'm thinking of a list of rules, and one extra zoom.
Rules would be something like: If the transmission is in 4:3, stretch to 16:9.
The one extra zoom would be a 4;3 to 16:9 stretch, for when a hidef
feed plays a 4:3 program.
If that is possible, i.e. Myth knows the current program's dimensions,
then the 'w' key would be all I need to keep things full screen. Oh,
with one diff: half & full zoom would revert to 4:3 before zooming.
Actually, that alone would fix everything for me: have zooms restore
aspect optionally. I think I'll just add a boolean setting for that!
